Grace Hopper Stage
Stage BAS

Grace Murray Hopper (born December 9, 1906, New York, died January 1, 1992, Arlington Virginia) was a pioneer in developing computer technology. The stage, dedicated to her work showcases the application of big data and AI technologies for various industries. 

After graduating from Vassar College (B.A., 1928), Hopper attended Yale University (M.A., 1930; Ph.D., 1934). She taught mathematics at Vassar before joining the Naval Reserve in 1943. She became a lieutenant and was assigned to the Bureau of Ordnance’s Computation Project at Harvard University(1944), where she worked on Mark I, the first large-scale automatic calculator and a precursor of electronic computers. She remained at Harvard as a civilian research fellow while maintaining her naval career as a reservist. After a moth infiltrated the circuits of Mark I, she coined the term bug to refer to unexplained computer failures.
